This week’s notable storylines…
   Led by the nation’s leader in sacks, Nordly Capi, the Rams attempt to cor-
   ral a talented true freshman QB that nearly led Utah State to victory at the
   defending national champion’s house Sept. 3.
                                                                                                                                              Utah State                    Colorado State
   Capi needs one more sack to own the most by a CSU player since Bryan
   Save had seven in 2003. With 7½, he’d have the most this century, since                                                                    AGGIES                          RAMS

Flag-filled first half: The Rams and Buffs combined for 119 penalty yards
in the first half, including six personal fouls.
   The last time a CSU opponent had as many as 10 penalties in a game was
   Sept. 4, 2010, when CU committed 10.
   The teams combined for 19 penalties, the most in a CSU game since
   Nov. 6, 2004, when CSU (seven) and Urban Meyer’s No. 7 Utah Utes
   (13) totaled 20 in a contest at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

First-down woes: Colorado State recorded only three first downs in the
third quarter, two of which came on the final drive of the quarter.

56 SHAQUIL BARRETT
Linebacker | 6-2 | 244 | Sophomore | TR | Baltimore, Md. (Boys Town, Neb.)
2011 (Sophomore): Immediately eligible because Nebraska-Omaha disbanded its football program, has quickly adapted to the CSU defensive scheme, playing in three
games with two starts…Made his Division I debut in the opener at New Mexico (Sept. 3), entering late in the first quarter; with just over four minutes left in the game, and
CSU protecting a 14-10 lead, combined with C.J. James to sack Tarean Austin on fourth-and-14…A week later in a big win vs. Northern Colorado (Sept. 10), earned his
first major-college start, as the Rams’ middle linebacker…Broke up a UNC pass on the second play from scrimmage, then forced a third-quarter incompletion, hurrying the
pass by launching himself at the quarterback…Started again at MLB in Denver loss vs. Colorado (Sept. 17), making a key play on a first-quarter drive to flush QB Tyler
Hansen out of the pocket and into the arms of teammate C.J. James; also played defensive end during several snaps in the second half.

3 SHAQ BELL
Defensive Back | 5-11 | 191 | Sophomore | 1L | Kissimmee, Fla. (Osceola)
2011 (Sophomore): A true sophomore that started nine games in 2010, has shifted to a key reserve role after Elijah-Blu Smith moved from safety to cornerback, and played
in three games…In season-opening win at New Mexico (Sept. 3), played most of the game, including action on the first series; late in the contest, with CSU protecting a
14-10 lead, drew a key holding penalty to negate a first down, then one play later blanketed Deon Long in the corner of the end zone.

2 THOMAS COFFMAN
Wide Receiver | 5-10 | 168 | Freshman | RS | Austin, Texas (Stephen F. Austin)
2011 (Freshman): A lightning-fast sprinter, has played in three games…Saw his first collegiate action in season-opening win at New Mexico (Sept. 3); on a deep pass over
the middle midway through the first quarter, almost made an acrobatic catch, maintaining focus on a tipped ball to nearly secure a completion on his back, but the ball
grazed the ground…In home-opening win over Northern Colorado (Sept. 10), alertly recovered a fumble near the Bears’ goal line to preserve a drive that ended with a TD
run two plays later, just before halftime; then, drew a pass-interference flag to preserve a third-quarter FG drive…Drew another pass-interference penalty in Denver loss vs.
Colorado (Sept. 17).
